For Sepia Saturday this week, I scanned another photo from Great Granny’s album. At first glance, compared to the other images of silly antics and general high jinks, this photo didn’t seem to have much going for it, however on close inspection, you can almost feel the fun between the two of them.
I don’t know who Granny’s unknown friend or relative is (yet) but he’s obviously someone she feels close to, judging by the way she’s holding his arm. He has his hand on his heart – I wonder what he was thinking? They both look a bit crumpled.
Here’s a more recent photo (1964) of Granny at the age of 55, my Dad and Yours Truly.
Have a close look at what my Mum did to my hair! The cheek of it. That’s my Mum up in the banner with me in my racing pram. I remember that hideous kitchen wallpaper – we had it for years, but sadly we only had Granny for another 3 years, so I’m getting to know her better through the Album and feel very lucky to have it :-)
